Wolichu Wachi is the successor of our beloved Ye Genet.This coffee starts with strong notes of strawberry, finishes with a subtle hint of orange, and when you put your nose to it you’ll discover a yummy bergamot aroma. Oh, and we even found some notes of grapefruit and pineapple!
Wolichu Wachu has a medium body, but is still super clean. These naturally processed beans comes from the Guij region in Ethiopia. The fruity flavours from the region and high altitude terrain combined with the funky, winey flavours from the natural process are always a hit.
We love a clean natural coffee and Wolichu Wachu is a perfect start for Keen to start working directly with this Cooperative.
The story – the farm
Coffees from the Guij region are always super fruity and complex, in combination with the terrain’s high altitude, the great attention given during fermentation, and the bourbon variety you get a super clean coffee.
This coffee gets its name from the indigenous Wolichu tree, known for its tall open canopy. The Wolichu is such a well known variety that it’s been described by Darwin and considered sacred at different points in time.
